The sweeping chronicle of a great and tragic pharaoh who lost his throne for the love of a god.
In the glory of ancient Egypt, an epic of a royal family divided, bloody power ploys, and religious wars that nearly tore apart one of the greatest empires in human history.
Akhenaten: The dream-filled King of Egypt, who dared to challenge the ancient order of his people and dethrone the jealous deities of his land for the glory of one almighty God.
Nefertiti: The most beautiful woman in the world, bred from birth to be the pharaoh's devoted lover - and to follow him anywhere, even in his tortured obsessions.
What disappointed you about A God Against the Gods?
I have three hours left of this book, but I can't go on. It is read so badly that I can't tell whether its the narration or the writing that makes the book unbearable. I stuck to it this far hoping its going to pick up. No. It is uniformly boring, the voices are horrible - especially that of the main character. I understand he was supposed to be croaking most of the time. But there is croaking and there is this croaking - awful to listen to.
